7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
Some questions for a discussion on this passage:
1. Does "days of his flesh" refer to the Lord Jesus entire life or just the last 3 years, especially his suffering after being arrested?
2. "able to save him from death" - does this mean spiritual death or physical death - both of which are implied by the greek word for death.
3. "was heard in that he feared" - does this mean got saved from "death or corruption" by his ressurection from actual death?
4. "yet learned he obedience.." - is this talking about how the Lord submitted willingly to the Father's will when he suffered on the cross?
Really would like a discussion around these points or other opinions you may have. Thank you.
